Twins Return From Matching ACL Tears

The Springfield News-Sun tells the amazing story of Derrick and Desmond Braziel, twins on the Wittenberg football team who each tore their right anterior cruciate ligaments, a little more than a month apart.

It sounds like a joke, but the twins suffered identical injuries, Derrick in a preseason scrimmage on Aug. 23, 2006 and Desmond in practice Sept. 26.

The story, thankfully, has a happy ending, as both Derrick and Desmond returned to the field in last week's Capital game.
